Robert, if you do come down and since you no longer have your Fiero, I'll loan you one of my cars.

Dragon and Marianna, wish things had turned out better for you and the ABS light hadn't come on. It would have been great to have had that Mini along in the group. It was nice socializing with you at the hotel. Hope you enjoyed the Vineyards tour you took.

Unfortunately, our official RFTH photographer (Fierfly) took the year off...so we don't have a stack of action shots and dash photos to show you. I know what you are thinking...."I swear I remember her being there." She was...but we just weren't comfortable taking the camera in a car that had that much potential for wetness. And...we are glad we made that decision. We actually didn't get any water at all in the car until we stopped at the church. Not sure if it was the rough road there that broke things loose, or the heavier rain that hit us that caused it....but we discovered a couple more leaks than we ever have before. We had fun even though we drove with towels on our laps and still came out soaked. Next time it rains though, we are bringing a coupe.

Thanks for letting me lead for a while. At first I didn't want to because my mind wasn't on driving...but once I got in front, the driving gave me a chance to take my mind off other things.

We decided to take the Blue Ridge Parkway home again. Once again....we got just past Mount Mitchell when we decided it was getting late enough that we should just get home. Once again....the next route off the parkway was 80...also known as The Devil's Whip. At the end of the day, we made it home with no issues.

Of course, I can't leave you completely pictureless...so here are a few taken on our trip home.

It looks like the club car (88 coupe in the 1st picture) was doing OK. Did it make it all the way without problems?
BTW, the bolt that holds on the positive battery terminal really needs to be replaced. Please have whoever is going to do the ball joints also check into that.

No issues at all. In fact, he has decided his next Fiero will have to be an 88.

I've found that the current batteries seem to not have enough threads for our battery cables to catch into. I've had to go to the longer double cable style posts and use the big spacer that comes with it.

You made a great leader on the run and I remain amazed at what you can do with an 84 automatic. There were times when I was in sight of you that you were able to pull away from the group.

Too bad our schedule wasn't flexible enough that we could have joined you on the Parkway. Maybe we need to take a two day cruise like we did once before, stopping overnight at some spot along the parkway.

Explanation: Sometimes when I have tried to start the car, after it has sat a while, there was no voltage at all. In every case, re-tightening that bolt on the battery fixed it.
